I love this boat and I love the spirit of the guys behind it:
"Mylius was born in 2003 from a dream and the love for sailing of three men. Mario Sassi, Alberto Simeone and Mauro Montefusco always lived sailing as their big passion, since childhood; then, after various professional experiences in other sectors, they launched a completely new company, able to reflect their way of living and loving the sea.
In 2004 "Wednesday", the first Mylius 11E25, was launched, a boat with many great innovations, including the dinette in the bow and the large sun-bathing area aft, then copied by many different shipyards.
In 2007 the first Mylius 14E55 was launched, a fast cruiser-racer without sacrifices in terms of comfort, but winning in high-level regattas – as the two Italian ORC International Championships won by “Fra Diavolo” in 2009 and 2010. ...
Like all Mylius Yachts, the 18E35 is a fast cruiser-racer, a true “Grandturing” able to combines at best comfort, performance, quality and design. The Mylius 18E35 is a very comfortable, easy and safe yacht, with wide sunbathing areas, cosy cockpit and interiors and very complete equipments; is a very fast and balanced yacht, under any sailing conditions and with any crew, and very competitive when racing; above all, is an elegant and sophisticated yacht, completely built and rigged in carbon, with great attention to even the smallest details, to last and maintain value over time.
Furthermore, being built on request, every Mylius can be personalized based on the specific needs and desires of every owner and become a really unique yachts, able to express his own way of sailing."
and they also say about it:
"The sleek lines and the careful distribution of the hull’s volumes make it a thoroughbred with exciting performance, but also able to provide its guests with all the necessary amenities when cruising.
The boat therefore features a medium-light displacement, high waterline length and low water surface. The high sail-to-displacement ratio is balanced by the high righting moment, achieved via both the deep keel and a high shape stability, consequence of the generous beam."
I love the "medium-light displacement" part
: this 60ft weights 15900kg and 6200kg are ballast.
I had already posted a short video but did not notice that there was a big one and this boat deserves all the minutes of it. I could fall in love with something like this if I had the money for it.
It is designed and engineered by Tommy Testa Dura, I mean Alberto Simeone.
